Recommended Posts

Hi, Just wondered how much money you earn?Whilst your at it you may as well tell us how much CSA, mortgage, savings, inheritance, TAX you have paid or recieved!

Oh! and how much did you pay for your car?I'm not telling, but if you want to share...

OK, my first ever full-time wage was £9 a fortnight!

£9 a fortnight, impressive, my first wage was £9 p/w for a paper round back when i was 13 i think. So 13 years ago.

I was told off on CGTI when i told people what i was on when a similar thread appeared, something along the lines of 'you're on that and you drive a Lupo, yeah whatever'

I'll tell if you tell. Hehe

1. I said Full Time job, so no paper rounds at 13!!!

2. I think Tigz has a point! :lol:

3. For £9 a fortnight I left home to serve Queen & Country! Yay! Was I hero or was I stoopid?!?!?! :huh:

4. I've realised since doing my degree that more qualificarions doesn't mean better jobs, or money!

Matt still not telling, but I don't pay the same NI/Tax amouint as you!

I was told he bought the Porsche 'cause he liked the wheels, took 'em off and scrapped the car. Or did he give it to the local orphanage...

There seems to be a big difference in paper round wage.

11 years a go I was making £16 a week for my round. Which was one bag full every morning. Two Bags full every Saturday. Took me an hour to do every morning before school and it was slower going on Saturday. So probably an hour and a half. Sunday papers were done by different paper round boys. They used to get £8 for their round but it was like 4 bags full with all the supplements.

The funny thing was there was this rich kid who used to get his dad to drive him round on his round and all he had to do was jump out the car and pop the paper through the door and meet his dad at the end of the road... Seriously bonkers.

I wouldn't get out of bed for £9 a week! :coffee:

Oh! and shouted at and 'beasted'!

In 1984 I got £5.50 per week on my paper round, 5 mornings and afternoons a week. To think that's not even 1 hour minimum wage these days.

My thread, my rules...

I don't care about paper rounds! No paper rounds, no milk rounds, no schoolie part time jobs!

I don't care if you worked 'down pit' part-time whilst studying for your leaving certificate!

I don't care if you were a child prostitute at weekends, while cramming for your 11 Plus...

Show me the money!

:lol:
